Abstract

In The Northern Question: A History of a Divided Country, Tom Hazeldine provides a long history of the establishment and reproduction of the North-South divide in England in order to make sense of the impact of present-day regional divisions. While this is a well-written account, drawing on wide reading and offering telling anecdotes, John Tomaney remains unconvinced by the book’s weighing of the evidence and its theoretical framework that overlooks the nuances of the region’s social and cultural history as well as the specificities of Northern Labourism. The Northern Question: A History of a Divided Country. Tom Hazeldine. Verso. 2020.
